UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) – Two teenage girls are wanted for the armed robberies of two cabbies and two tourists in eastern Pennsylvania last week.

Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says the girls are “violent predators.”

They began by robbing two cabbies about two hours apart the night of June 19. The girls called for rides, then used a gun to steal $100 and $80 from the drivers.
